8. How the loudest noise is produced from the tractor?
a) Braking
b) Steering
c) Tractor horn
d) Combustion, gear movements
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: The tractor can produce loud noises due to reciprocating parts. From combustion, piston slap, gear movements, exhaust process noises are produced which affect the efficiency of the operator.

9. Which one is the factor for dashboard design in a tractor?
a) Randomly placed control
b) Asymmetrical system
c) Symmetrical system
d) Dissymmetry
View Answer

Answer: c
